#USvsHate Lead & Learn with CRLP

"Celebrate All Voices" Webinar Series

#USvsHate Lead & Learn with CRLP

The California Reading and Literature Project at California Lutheran University would like to invite participants to join guest speaker Sarah Peterson to learn about #USvsHate (us versus hate), an empowering student voice initiative’s impact to date, resources for classroom use on the website, how to participate and get your students involved, and dialogue with past/current participants.

#USvsHate is a collective action project to counter bigotry and create safe and welcoming schools.

#USvsHate has two aims:

  1. Support youth empowerment through the creation and amplification of anti-hate/pro-inclusion public messages
  2. Support teachers in responding to the increase in hate and harassment through facilitating anti-hate/pro-inclusion lessons

For more information, please see our flier for this event at #USvsHate Lead & Learn with CRLP flier.
